He took the time to really understand what I was trying to achieve with the lighting in my home and has completely transformed the space.

Straightline Electric
Electricians in Santa Barbara, CA
"I have been using Straightline Electric for my Property Management Company exclusively for about 8 years now. They are prompt, courteous and professional. They are spot-on with their billing and I have never had one complaint or call back. I often have more than one vendor for every kind of repair ( plumbers, handyman, etc) but in this case I do not. What would be the point. I now have many of the property owners using them directly for their personal homes. I highly recommend this company. Not often I would put my reputation on the line but in this case I do it in a heartbeat. Thank you!!"
